Are the powers-that-be still looking for a senate-reinstating issue? As per the first post:
Nation of Quebec wrote:
No Senate - Triggered by abolishing the upper house in 560. No reversal exists. High priority: An issue that reinstates the upper house.

It seems like an interesting concept that I could work with, while also being kinda structured for me to get started in issue writing...

Something like legislation passed with lots of basic errors—need upper house to review. Options with hereditary upper house, appointed upper house, elected upper house?

The requests list on that post was up to date apart from the "no courts" reversal, which was closed recently. So yes, we still need an upper house reinstatement issue.

Have amended and re-dated the post.

We got an issue like this yet? :P

Come to think of it, John Oliver presents a lot of interesting issue ideas honesty, like rent skyrocketing on mobile homes and such

Have we issues about local complementary currencies? Like the Brixton pound?
Not sure how I want to 'issueize', but would like to if this hasn't already been done.
There are lots of possibilities :)

I'd assume it's just the next person to wear the cape. That, or a different vigilante would take over. If we have dogman, then we would probs have hundreds of other vigilantes too. If one dies, then there's probs hundreds of other superherp wannabes to take his place. And I don't think that the nickname would matter

The entire point of vigilantes is that they aren't appointed by the government.

Do you still want that idea I gave you about how the people living on small islands are facing rising sea levels and climate change?
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

Stay tuned everyone, I'm writing an issue based on a 95 clip from a 1990's children's TV show. Here's the clip in question:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ltG37Bbx1qk


Also, @Chan Islands, I am still interested in your idea about global warming and islands. I just need more time for research and structuring, plus my life outside of NS

Eh, don't worry about it mate. :)


Struggling a bit with what to do with the Punch to the Capital issue. On the one hand, having it be more about a hostile foreign power pointing missiles at the capital would be interesting, but would both no longer make the title work and draws away from the original "Blitz" issue idea it's going for. On the other hand, it opens it up for a lot more players.

In addition, not sure if I'm sure about having it be cruise missiles. Perhaps in the original I ought to have stressed that the squadron of drones were just on a bombing run, not a suicide mission, but that would have implied terrible defences in a demographic who larp as very warlike already so big red X.

I want to revive some of my old drafts, but I want to know how far bac player submitted issues go before I do so. Are there any player submitted issues sitting in the "Yes" pile as far back as October 2018, or do I need to redraft these?

Actually, there are some older issues hiding in the murky depths of the pool... but none of them appear to have been written by Aussie.
